I guess it's been a while since I've posted.  Here is an update:
Brayden had been asking alot of questions about the snow and if it snowed in Bakersfield.  I told him that it doesn't and so he made his own.
The good news is that the baby powder snow smelled so was called calming lavender.  I didn't get that mad as I was cleaning it up, it was very calming...and it even knocked his sister out. 

Our neighbors had to move so they needed a home for their dog and I thought of the perfect place.
Can you see the resemblance?  Although the black and white contrast on one of these subjects used to be... well ...more of a contrast than it is. They named him Izzy because he blended in with their furniture and couldn't find him very well...they would always ask "Where is he?"---Izzy.  Since then they got all cream colored furniture so they could find him.

The kids school had a Grandparents Day and they had a really good time with their grandma.

Brayden shared his grandma with his sister and couple of his buddies Warren "Dub" and Johnathan.

Brayden was learning about the life cycle of a pumpkin at school and found this pumpkin in our he plucked it.

We also had a carnival, mother-son game nights at school, and went to Disneyland but I have no pictures of both my cameras were not working well.

Then there was Halloween.
Kalyn and Madi were Halloween witches and Logan and Bray were Harry Potters.

Those are some cute kids!!!

Well now its November, and almost Thanksgiving.  This year has gone by so fast!

Trunk or Treating 2008

This year our ward had a carnival and the trunk or treating for the kids. My sister Melissa and her daughter Ally came with us. They all had a good time. They got lots of candy, and that IS the most important thing you know.
